bookshelves: non-fiction
Recommended for: anyone interested in business, economics and environmentalism
Read in May, 2007

This book opened my eyes to the necessity of changing the global economy to reflect true cost and human reality. Well-written and full of practical and achievable goals, this book really brings the idealogical debate over environmentalism down to earth. Hawken effectively demonstrates that not only can capitalism be re-invented, but that it MUST be reinvented. He makes the case for businesses to pave the way to a renewable future, and we would do well to listen. Corporations and the drive to profit are not the enemy: the economic system which rewards waste and degradation of the earth is.
